T1's are excellent.  I tried the T1, T90, and also the Sennheiser HD800.  T1's are my favourite of those three.  The T1 seems more accurate sounding than the HD800s, IMO.  Also, they are more lively sounding too. The other difference is the soundstage, HD800 has a bigger soundstage, no question about it.

 

The newer T1s sound better than the early serial numbers, and are much more balanced on the frequency response.  I have own both a 15XX and now have a 135XX.  The improvement is tangible.

Really? They sound different? Interesting if there were any changes between the models over the years. Is there any other variable that could possibly cause such a tangible difference? Perhaps the pads?

Wow. They just went all the way up both on amazon and sonicsense.

Before they were available for 840$ daily. I guess it really was something I should have picked up.

Seems like they're back up to the retail price now.

840 is crazy, should have jumped on that!  Today aside the lowest I've seen is high 900s which has been more recently.  They usually never drop below 1k new and the lowest I've seen is in the 950-960 range.

 

I've been curious about the t1 recently and so was everybody at the last meet I went too so I thought I'd give em a try.  Should be a different flavor from the other hi-fi/summit-fi phones I've tried/owned (LCD-2 r1/2, LCD-3, AT W3000ANV, HE-500)

Yes, there is a huge difference.  The older serial numbers up to # 3950 had harsher (and generally harsh..busy treble).  

 

See this post of Headfonia:

There are graphs on Inner Fidelity where Tyll measured the frequency response of the new T1, and also graphs of the old one.  You can see the spike in the freq. response at 8000 - 9000 Hz is now corrected and made much flatter.  This is what caused some people to describe the treble as zingy on the T1s, IMO.  I was looking to open up these headphones and pad them with some insulation material to correct for it, but the new T1s don't have this problem at all.  Very enjoyable.

 

The pads are the same on the new ones.

 

I also thought the T5P was pretty good for what they were.  Definitely less detailed and articulate than the T1s, with less soundstage.  However, the presentation seemed more focused on the vocals, or rather less details on the top and bottom of the frequency response plot.

Please make sure you use the T1s with a good amp and reasonably good source.  If they sound bad, I'd say it's most likely that they are picking up noise in the equipment chain, among other things.

 

I am using mine with an Audiolab 8200CDQ DAC -> Eddie Current ZDT.  Excellent pairing, quite happy with it.

Authorized dealer (according to them) Sonic Sense has the T1 for $768 shipped, when you sign up with them for free as a member:

 

http://www.sonicsense.com/beyerdynamic-t-1.html

 

Also very good deals in that context on the DT 880 300 Ohms and Fostex closed cans.

Great deal on the T1. Both the TH600 and TH900 are out of stock though (unless you buy a bundle).

If I don't like the sound of Beyer's mid-line cans, ie DT770 Pro 250 ohm, do you think I'd like the sound of the T-1?

Just trying to figure out if the deal is even worth considering for me.

I recently picked up a set of HE-500, which I love, and even on sale they were at the upper end of what I consider realistic price-wise.

T-1 are more, even with the sale price, but they are Beyer's top end cans.

Maybe worth the splurge?

No one can tell you that one way or the other.  You have to listen to them yourself.  The T1 has a very large sound stage (just below the HD 800).  It's sound signature is quite different from the HE-500, which has more body.  Second best to listening to them, you should read this:
